New Delhi: Arvind Kejriwal took questions from people across the country on Sunday in the first edition of his 'Talk to AK' show, a Q and A session that was part monologue on his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)'s achievements in Delhi and part forum to renew allegations against the Centre, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP.
Kejriwal, while responding to a question, said that the central government had created an India-Pakistan-like situation in the national capital because of which the Delhi government was not able to work to its full potential. “If (the Centre) had not created such an India-Pakistan like situation in Delhi, we would have achieved four times more,” he said. He reiterated that the bills passed by Delhi Assembly including JanLokpal bill were either not accepted by the central government or were pending for more than eight months.
When asked about the arrests of his MLAs and his Principal Secretary, Kejriwal replied that all the cases against his ministers were bogus and were inspired by ‘political vendetta’. Kejriwal continuously blamed what he termed as the ‘Centre’s interference’ in the working of Delhi AAP government during the two-hour long session thereby claiming his government was unable to perform to its full potential.
Kejriwal also mentioned that the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) is run by BJP and thus the cleanliness and roads condition in the city was not up to the mark. “We are hoping to win MCD elections next year and after that we will make sure that all the roads are in a good condition,” he assured.
